Minimal noise, maximum air flow. The Whisper® Air Pump’s dome shape actually flattens sound wave frequencies. In addition, each model features sound-dampening chambers designed specifically for that model. And the air pump's rubber feet and suspended motor prevent sound waves from reflecting off surfaces such as tables and shelves.

Available in models for aquariums from 10 to 100 gallons, Whisper Air Pumps provide a powerful flow of air. UL listed.

Tetra Whisper Air Pumps keep your aquarium oxygen levels high, helping keep your fish healthy. And with seven different sized pumps, there is sure to be one that is perfect for your aquarium. This line of air pumps has a unique dome shape and rubber feet.

Every Tetra pump also comes with a lifetime limited warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, quiet, and efficient I have three Whisper pumps and have found them to be reliable, quiet, and efficient. I use one outside in Dallas, Texas that has run constantly for a year and a half through freezing weather and extreme heat without missing a beat. A larger unit on my 55-gallon aquarium still works fine after three years. These are good pumps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very quiet but disappointing how qickly it broke I bought the 30 -60 gal early last spring and was very happy with the air flow and particularly how quiet it was but after less than a year the air stopped flowing. Turned out the rubbers inside broke. Since I love the pump otherwise I am searching for replacement parts but finding out that's not economical. It may be good if they would provide at least one set of replacement part with the product. I would recommend for the design style and quietness but you may need to replace it earlier that expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as designed Works as designed...no frills, a reasonably quiet, inexpensive pump with good vibration isolation with the soft rubber feet. I own two of their small units.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality and reliability Have been through 3 of the 100g air pumps in under a year for a 90g tank 4' long, 18" wide, and 2' deep. Pump sits under aquarium on cork pad on a shelf. Same problem each time - rubber diaphragm tear and failure after several weeks to several months of use. Thankfully only purchased two and pulled remaining good diaphragm from original pump to replace failed diaphragm on 2 week old replacement pump. Now a third diaphragm has failed forcing me to look elsewhere for a quality air pump. Save your money until quality control improves as Tetra does not guarantee the rubber diaphragms - likely due to their high rate of failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POJ We bought a whisper air pump (30-60) for our tank. It was very weak and It just didn't push enough air to even start bubbling. Thank goodness we could return it to the store and buy a reliable pump that actually works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whisper 30-60 broke after 4 months I purchased the 30-60 air pump 4 months ago, and the interior piece that holds the "replacement parts" broke. It has been sitting in one place since I bought it, I didn't move it or drop it. Now I have to buy a new pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air pump and it is quieter than all others I've been using a Whisper 40 air pump as well as a Whisper 100 for the past year. The Whisper 100 has been powering my LED bubble wand, bubble volcano, and animated treasure chest with more air to add more things as needed (I put some entertainment in my 2 year old's show tank). I have some old pumps that I used to use in the 1990s and both are very quiet compared to all of those pumps. You need to make sure to put them on a level and proper surface for maximum quietness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Service I purchased a ex40 pump and it was great, has lots of power, and is quieter than a cheaper one I had. But it did break after a month, suspect some defect. I recieved fantastic service from Laura in consumer relations. She stood behind the product and got me a new unit within a week. Very impressed with the service from Tetra. Will definately purchase more products from Tetra

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pump is noisy and short lived I purchased the pump a little under a year ago. The air flow was great at the time of the purchase but the pup was so noisy that I ended up putting it in a closet and running the air tubing through a wall, 3 datys ago one side of the pump stopped delivering air. I rerouted all of the tubing to be fed from the working side. Within 24 hours, it also stopped delivering air. I dismantled the pump and found the rubber diaphragms were cracked around the mounting screws as others had found. As a temporary measure I super glued the cracks. One side gave out within 24 hours but the other side is working 48 hours later. I found the repair kits on Ebay for around $16.50 but the new pumps are selling for $23. If the repair kits were about $5.00, the pump would be worth it, because dismantling the pump is easy and replacing the diaphragms takes about 5 minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was wonderful for a month This airpump worked great and it was very quite. However after about a month it became incredibly noisey and it did not pump air affectivly. I wish Tetra would make better quality products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The pump is incredibly loud The reason I gave it two stars is because it's relatively inexpensive and works as it should. The downside is that it's so incredibly loud. I can hear the hum over my television or music, even when the volume is cranked. What's worse is that it's called the 'whisper' when it does anything but.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Tetra whisper 100 worked for less than 2 yrs It is generally a pump that can not last long. My pump suddenly lost pressure and then by opening it up, I found both of the rubber diaphragms cracked and teared. I thought i,m still cover under warranty for less than 2 years. However, the warranty specifically stated of not covering any rubber parts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Check the pump before the airstones I had 2 whisper 60 in 34 and 40 gal tanks they were great out of the box but they soon lost pressure after a few months. I thought it was the airstones clogging so I kept replacing them. The new stones worked great but would lose pressure after a month. I finally took the pumps apart and all the diaphragms had cracks in them and when the backpressure built up they would lose pressure. I came here to buy replacement parts. With shipping they are as much as a new pump. I've had pumps that were over 20 yrs old that still worked. Seems that because all the diaphragms cracked it is a manufacturing problem.
